After more than 5 years-BIG & RICH are getting ready to put out a new album--as the "HILLBILLY JEDIS." That is what they are calling the new release which features JON BON JOVI & his Guitarist, RICHIE SAMBORA. BIG KENNY says that it was JON BON JOVI that actually came up with the title, "Hillbilly Jedis" when they were in a writing session together. He said the line-which is from one of their songs-was good enough to go on a t-shirt. BIG & RICH decided it was even good enough for the cover of their new album! JON also appears on the upcoming album. No release date has been set yet, but it's first single, "THAT'S WHY I PRAY" is quickly climbing charts!
